You Cant Unlocked ...

Well the one way that i can think of that you can do is that if you have a membership with t-mobile thats over 90 days you call them and ask them for the code and they will get it for you but i dont know any other way because i have the same problem with a sidekick 3 and sidekick id

Yes you will need to contact tmobile for a simsubsidy unlock code so that you can use your sim card with the phone. We usually do these types of unlocks for customers who are going to travel outside the u.s and want to use a local sim so it would be cheaper for them in terms of roaming charges.

If the sim came with the phone that is an American phone you need a sim for an African mobile phone network in your country or you need to contact the American mobile phone network provider to get the unlock code. The phone may be locked onto a particular USA mobile phone radio network and you would need to know what network it is locked to. There are web sites that offer to get the unlock code on the internet for mobiles locked on a particular mobile network but I have not had experience using them and do not know how successful they are to try and unlock a mobile from a particular mobile network. You will find this out when you change the sim card in the phone for a local African mobile phone provider in Africa
see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC0KKX-2bn8

with an USA sim card and USA mobile network provider you will pay lots of money in Roaming charges which you would wish to avoid by using a local African mobile provider.
A local provider may be able to help you unlock the phone from the particular mobile network if it is locked on a USA mobile network.

There must be a mobile network provider in Africa that can work on your mobile phone type for it to work with that mobile network providers correct sim card.

Another source of problem could be if the phone has been reported as stolen the IMEI may not work due to being blacklisted and disabled.

The code is the unlock code. It must be unlocked to use with the digicel network. Contact T-Mobile since they manufactured the phone and they will provide the code to you.
